"it contributed an overwhelming proportion of the English vocabulary" This is false: English is a Germanic language, and the bulk of common English words are Germanic in origin.

The use of "locative" in the Life of Brian example is only slightly incorrect. When you name a place to which you are going, you regularly use "ad + accusative" EXCEPT when the noun takes the locative case, which domus certainly does. You still use the accusative, but you drop the preposition.
